'Kingdom' post-mortem: Creator talks finale, and what's next

In Kingdom‘s season 1 finale, Ryan Wheeler and Jay Kulina both began their comebacks, Nate gave into temptation, Christina might have returned to her old ways, Lisa changed her life, and Alvey realized that sometimes getting everything you want leaves you, well, nowhere. All in all, it was an hour full of beautifully executed fight scenes and even more powerful drama.

We talked with creator Byron Balasco about the final hour and what fans can expect moving forward.

'Originals' postmortem: Rebekah's back, and Finn is starting a war

In last night’s Originals mid-season finale, not only did Klaus and Rebekah team up to defeat their mother, but Kol then trapped Rebekah in a witch’s body inside some sort of prison. And if that weren’t enough family drama, Mikael is back and he’s teaming up with Finn to take down, well, probably everyone.

EW hopped on the phone with Originals executive producer Michael Narducci to talk about where the show will pick up in 2015, the return of Cassie, and more.

'Castle' boss talks finale twist, and Castle as a private investigator

In tonight’s season 7 mid-season finale of Castle, not only did Richard Castle become an honorary mobster, but that status then got him kicked out of helping the NYPD. That’s right: Castle is no longer welcome in the 12th precinct. But what does that mean?

We talked with showrunner David Amann about how the twist will affect Castle and what fans can expect in 2014.

'Reign' post-mortem: Showrunner defends the show's most controversial scene

After a story leaked months ago that Reign was working on a rape storyline that involved Mary, fans immediately took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the idea. More than 1,000 viewers signed a petition hoping to stop the writers before they could film the scene. But in tonight’s penultimate episode, Mary was raped by a Protestant who entered the castle in a failed assassination attempt against Francis.

In a painful scene, one of the Protestants revealed himself to be the father of the minister who was murdered last week. And as payback, he decided to attack Mary while another guard held her down. As the title of the episode indicated, it was an act of war and one that will undoubtedly end with the Protestant’s death, particularly after Mary tasked Francis with the job of finding the men that did this to her.

But regardless of what happens next, we got Reign showrunner Laurie McCarthy on the phone to talk about the shocking twist and explain why the writers felt it was an important scene.

'Kingdom' post-mortem: Paul Walter Hauser on Keith's shocking decision

Kingdom is full of damaged and very dangerous characters. It’s a show about mixed martial artists, after all. But when one of those fighters is also recently released from prison and living at a halfway house, things only get more complicated.

For weeks now, fans have gotten to know Keith. The guy who started out simply as Ryan’s roommate has blossomed into his own, very complex character. And in this week’s episode, Keith did something that probably he didn’t even expect. In the hour’s final moments, Michael, the halfway house bully, crossed a line when he asked Ryan about his dad. And that’s when Keith, the seemingly harmless guy who doesn’t even know how to throw a punch, snapped. Keith grabbed a butcher’s knife and began stabbing Michael repeatedly before Ryan stopped him and attempted to make it look like self defense.

It was arguably the show’s most jaw-dropping moment to date, so we got Paul Walter Hauser, who plays Keith, on the phone to talk about his reaction and what comes next:

'The Originals' post-mortem: EP on family secrets, Rebekah, and more

Surely you didn’t think the Original family was out of secrets, did you? Because as Tatia’s appearance on the show proved, even the noblest of Originals has skeletons in his closet. And from what executive producer Michael Narducci had to say about the hour, there’s more where that came from:

'Supernatural' boss talks premiere, introducing 'witchery' this year

Supernatural‘s 10th season kicked off with an hour full of karaoke, mystery, at least one kidnapping, and then some more karaoke. By the end of it, Sam’s hunt for Dean was halted, and Dean had left his karaoke mic behind to escape his brother’s grasp. But what happened to Sam’s shoulder? And what is Crowley’s master plan?

We chatted with showrunner Jeremy Carver to talk about the events of the premiere, what’s next, and this year’s introduction of witch Rowena:

'The Originals' post-mortem: Phoebe Tonkin, producer talk twists

And there you have it. In the first hour of The Originals‘ second season, not only did fans watch as Francesca and the Guerrera wolves met their maker, but we also caught up with every member of the Original family. Every. member. Talk about a welcome back to the world of New Orleans.

'Vampire Diaries' post-mortem: Nina Dobrev on premiere twist, what's next

In The Vampire Diaries‘ season 6 premiere, Elena was left to grieve the loss of Damon. Only, her coping mechanisms weren’t exactly conventional. And in a final twist, she decided to use Alaric’s return to her advantage by asking the Original vampire to compel her to forget Damon altogether.

Between that and the image of seeing Damon making pancakes (in flannel!), the premiere left a lot of questions unanswered. We got Nina Dobrev’s reaction to the Elena twist, mixed with a few additional answers from executive producer Caroline Dries.

'Teen Wolf' post-mortem: Jeff Davis on those finale twists, season 5

What’s a trip to Mexico without a few berserkers, one very angry werejaguar, and a near-death experience, right? That’s the attitude Teen Wolf took in its season 4 finale, when nearly everyone headed down to Mexico to save Scott from Kate, himself, and then from Peter. One hour later, we’d said (hopefully a temporary) goodbye to Chris Argent, a hello to a more powerful version of Derek, an Eichen House goodbye to Peter, and a maybe-see-you-later to Kate. As for the others, Kira had received her first tail, Jordan Parrish was about to learn a lot more about himself, and Liam had gained a little control over his life.

We chatted with Teen Wolf showrunner, Jeff Davis, about the action-packed hour, the thought behind all the twists, and where the show will go in season 5. (Hint: It involves the desert.)

'Pretty Little Liars' postmortem: [Spoiler] talks 'epic death'

Fans of Pretty Little Liars knew someone was going to die heading into last night’s summer finale. But the question of who—and perhaps more importantly, which character would do the killing—remained unknown up until the final minutes of the episode.

After spending the episode helping the Liars track down recordings of Bethany Young’s therapy sessions and apaprently discovering solid proof that Alison DiLaurentis is “A,” Mona Vanderwaal, the Original “A,” put her life in the hands of one deadbolt … and it did not go well. Although her killer’s identity isn’t certain, there are strong hints that Ali murdered Mona. Whoever did it took Mona’s body with them, hauling her off in the trunk of a car in the final shot of the episode.

We caught up with Janel Parrish, the very alive actress behind the very dead Mona to talk about that death, her future on the show, and what comes next on PLL‘s first ever Christmas episode.

'Game of Thrones' showrunners talk season 5: 'There will be Dorne'

Podrick-Payne.jpg

Another epic season behind us, another promising season ahead. For the fifth season of HBO’s Game of Thrones, showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss will draw inspiration from the fourth and fifth novels in George R.R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire saga: A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons. (Each novel focuses on different characters while covering roughly the same period of time.)

On Sunday night, we posted the showrunners’ answers to some burning questions about Thrones’ game-changing finale. Below, our conversation continues as we shift the subject to next year. Who else can’t wait to see Jaime Lannister bust out that jetpack? (Note: The first portion of this interview was conducted by email, with the producers answering via joint statements.)

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: We’ve come to a huge pivot point. George R.R. Martin originally conceived of his books as a trilogy, and the end of A Storm of Swords feels like the first and only natural breaking point in the saga. It also begins a stretch of storytelling that some fans feel isn’t as compelling as what came before it. What’s your take on season 5?
DAVID BENIOFF & DAN WEISS: After finishing season 3, we were nervous about season 4—we’d been looking forward to the Red Wedding for so long that once we shot it, we feared everything beyond that would seem like an anti-climax. We grew less nervous when we outlined season 4, less nervous still when we wrote the episodes, and all nervousness evaporated when we saw the directors’ cuts and knew we had a great season in hand. For season 5, again, the fear started to dissipate when we outlined it and realized how much story we had to tell. Now that we’re nearly finished with the first drafts of each episode, we see no reason why the coming season shouldn’t be the strongest yet. READ FULL STORY

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched the season 5 premiere of Pretty Little Liars, stop reading now!

Last night’s season 5 premiere of Pretty Little Liars revealed another member of the “A” team before, moments later, killing off that person. More specifically, Aria killed Shana in self-defense. For those of you who watched it live, odds are you’re still wrapping your head around everything that happened — not to mention CeCe’s farewell — but we’ve got a little something that might help.

We chatted with PLL showrunner Marlene King about the decision to kill Shana, what exactly Ezra whispered, and what comes next with Mona’s Army. Check it out below: READ FULL STORY
